Description

Heals as it cleans. More than a cleanser, this conditioning bar nourishes the surface of skin while strengthening its innate ability to heal—perfect for blemish-prone complexions. By removing oil and surface bacteria gently, it deep cleans and refines pores while leaving skin feeling fresh, balanced and renewed. Features a soothing mix of pore-penetrating ingredients such as:

  • Palm oil—packed with the same kind of fatty acids found in skin—to help regulate skin’s oil content as well as protect against outside stressors.

  • Glycerin, a powerful moisturizer, to strengthen skin’s structure and fight the bacteria that can lead to breakouts.

  • Safflower seed oil to lock in moisture by creating a protective barrier that prevents water from leaving skin’s surface (because overly dry skin can stimulate excess oil production leading to more breakouts).

Be in the know:
Our Cleansing Bars boast the highest concentration of powerful skincare actives. In addition, some of our bars rely on advanced nano-encapsulation technology to deliver time-released spheres able to penetrate skin’s surface allowing active ingredients to work even longer than conventional cleansers. Plus, contrary to popular belief, Cleansing Bars are inherently unfriendly environments to microbes that only grow on food sources (such as your skin’s sebum oil.) Translation: as soon as the bar touches your skin, it begins to combat the oil that bacteria thrive on.

    While accustomed to using the original "Special Skin Soap" designed for my normal/oily skin; this replacement product works well, but does not seem to have the lasting effects at combating the shine as the original Special Skin Soap I have used for 25+ years. I suspect this Oil Control Cleansing Bar contains more glycerin, which moisturizers but alas does not combat the shine after a few hours. Overall a good product with rich lather, but not what I'm accustomed to from Erno Laszlo.

    I used to suffer from acne, I would break out several times during the month, pores were clogged no matter the amount of facials I had or treatments I got. My break outs would return. No other product is equal to this little bar of soap. Worth every penny and it is the only brand that actually changed my skin. You have to follow the ritual everyday and not be lazy about it, because it works. When I have gone a few days with washing my face without this soap, I will break out even with other brands of facial soap. I will never change to another! So when I met people who suffer from acne I tell them about this product. I literally noticed the difference from one day to another with using this bar.

    Almost all soaps dry my skin--even though it's combo/oily. It'll get dry in the surface, trapping oil and causing more break outs. And most products for oily skin try to suck up as much oil as possible, drying my surface skin even further. When I started using this soap, I thought, because it was for oily skin, it would be super drying, too. But its actually LESS drying to my skin than even the phelityl soap was! Cuts down on oil and cleans my pores. Really like it.

    I have tried many cleansers and had no luck keeping the oil at bay. The special skin soap is wonderful, it doesn't strip my skin and dry it out AND it doesn't look oily 2 hrs later. i have also noticed that my cyst like blemishes have decresed dramatically. If you have trouble controlling oily skin this is the best thing to use. It's worth the money!

    I've been a Laszlo loyalist for over three decades. As is typical, my skin has changed (not aged!) through the years. This cleanser was a great find for my current condition.

  • I am writing about my 17 year old son with problem acne. A friend recommended the regular regimen with the light control lotion and regular controling lotion. But I see you have 2 cleansers for acne, the bar and another. What regimen do you recommend for him? He has tried Proactive and something from the doctor with no results.

    Hi Camille, For acne use the Beta Wash.
